How do you make a character say something, meanwhile other characters are doing other animations?


Can someone please help, I want a character to say something but at the same time I want other characters doing another animation MEANWHILE the character is saying sonething?


&CHARACTER1 is animation

CHARACTER2 (animation)
Dialog here.


What about when I have two characters doing the animation at the same time how would I write that? While the other is talking?


Using AND you can make multiple characters do things at the same time.

&CHARACTER1 is animation AND CHARACTER2 is animation

CHARACTER3 (animation)
Dialog here.


I feel like I did that before & didn’t work the first time… huh :confused: but one last quistion i’m really struggling with this scene where the pause is too long & Instead of a pause I want it to zoom slowly giving it enough time for the “shush” animation to finish once the zoom goes onto them… how would I do that?


Try &ROMAN is shush and DAVIEN is shush instead.

When you use @ it won’t go to the next line until it’s finished so you need to use & instead. So right now it stops to have Roman shush and when he’s done Davien will shush and then it will pause. Then It will pan/zoom so that’s what’s making it take longer i assume.
